Chocolate Pancakes are just as simple to make as traditional pancakes. The main difference is the addition of cocoa powder to give it the decadent chocolate taste. You can even go a step further by adding chocolate chips; semi-sweet, milk, or even white. Top with whipped cream or fresh berries and you have a seriously scrumptious stack of pancakes!

These Chocolate Pancakes are a great weekend breakfast. They hold well in the freezer so it will be worth it to make a large stack and store them for a lazy Sunday morning down the road. Even better, you can rewarm some for an after dinner sweet treat. No matter when you make these Chocolate Pancakes, they will be enjoyed!
